The Landscape And Architecture Of Montagu 1850- 1915


By Derek Japha and Vivienne Japha



These are essays and studies of the landscape and architecture of Montagu, which is one of the best-preserved mid-19th century towns in the Western Cape and contains many interesting buildings dating from 1850 onwards. The study is based on field work carried out between 1981 and 1990 and on research in the Cape Archives, the South African Library, the Johannesburg Public Library, the Africana Library and the African Studies Library of the University of Cape Town.

As an added bonus we include the booklet MONTAGU HISTORIC HOMES 1850 -2000
which contains the original research by Esther Hofmeyr and which has now been revised and updated by Don Woodford
